Piping products to rely on

Hidden beneath our offices, homes and streets is a subterranean network that performs a crucial role in supporting our everyday lives. Water pipes supply safe drinking water, remove waste, prevent floods, and ensure our day to day comfort. For those outside of the construction industry, very little attention is given to these channels until they fail to do the task at hand.

The consequences of a burst or leaking pipe can be severe. Both for residential buildings and across the wider public network, pipe failure not only leads to flooding but can cause property damage, power cuts and travel chaos.

The building and utilities industries have been under increasing government pressure to reduce leakage by at least 15%. Despite this target, the average amount of water lost per day still measures an eye-watering 3,183m litres. Add to that increasingly unstable weather patterns and more housing developments on floodplains, and it's clear to see why a robust piping infrastructure is imperative for the future.

Piping that's built to last

For residential and commercial builders, selecting a reliable, strong, corrosion-resistant product can help to minimise the risk and guarantee long-term sustainability. When we're asked for advice on drainage and plumbing products, there's one name that we never hesitate to recommend – Wavin.

Wavin is the UK's leading supplier of water management systems for building, civil construction, and utilities companies. It manufactures a range of market-leading brand names such as Osma, Hep20 and Hepworth, which cater for a wide variety of applications both above and below ground.

Finding the right product

At Rudridge, we supply a wealth of Wavin pipes, joints and accessories to suit every job.

The OsmaDrain brand is designed to deal with foul and surface water gravity drainage. With a wide variety of standard components available such as bends, junctions and fittings, in 82mm, 110mm, and 160mm diameter sizes, a complete system can be compiled from the range. All pipes and most fittings are made from unplasticised, polyvinyl chloride (PVC-U), which delivers a robust and reliable material that can withstand high pressures.

What makes OsmaDrain unique is its co-injection, snap-cap and sealing ring concept for total joint integrity and easy site inspection. The larger sizes (110mm and 160mm) use Wavin's innovative Recycore Technology, which utilises 50% recycled materials.

Also available from Wavin, the Hepworth Clay brand is a complete range of clay pipes with an outstanding reputation for quality. All Hepworth products offer a long service life, superb recyclability and are manufactured using a process which minimises the environmental impact.

All these products comply to the latest standards and offer solutions you can trust. A detailed breakdown of our Wavin stock is available via our online product guide or by calling any one of our four branches across the South East.
